Ortom knocks Mohammed, labels Bauchi gov ‘Fulani terror’ member

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, on Monday maintains his conviction that his Bauchi State counterpart, Bala Mohammed, is a member of Fulani terrorists group terrorising Nigeria.

Governor Ortom, who said this during a press conference in Makurdi, also cried out that his life was being threatened by his counterpart’s outburst.

The Bauchi governor had criticised Ortom when he accused him (Ortom) of creating bad media campaign against Fulani ethnic group, stating that the situation had worsened the herder-farmer crisis.

Mohammed had further accused Ortom of criminalising the entire Fulani across the country.

Ortom, who reacted, said with the continuous support for Fulani herdsmen, his Bauchi counterpart “is one of the Fulani terrorists” that have invaded the country and terrorising innocent Nigerians.

Ortom said, “Since he (Bala Mohammed) has chosen to vilify and intimidate me, I am compelled to think that he is one of the Fulani terrorists terrorising this country.

“Why did I say so? This is the same governor, who took oath of office to protect the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The constitution does not give room to allow foreign armed Fulani herdsmen, Tiv people or Yoruba or any ethic group to come in and to carry arms.” he added.
